The annual Faculty and Staff Campaign kicks off on Tuesday, October 1, with a promise: “We know you’re busy and your time is valuable. Participation is what matters. A gift in any amount is welcome. The next 30 school days are the only time you will be asked for a gift this school year.” Check your campus mail box for campaign information and a giving form. While employees are urged to give to whatever they care most about, one focus this year is the new Recreation and Wellness Center, scheduled to break ground in summer 2014 on the current Public Safety lot. Make your gift by October 9 and receive a free coffee card in appreciation.
Last year’s campaign set new records, with 61.7% participation for a total of over $169,000. Of the 421 donors, more than 75% made gifts ranging from $1 to $249. And nearly 50% of all gifts were made via payroll deduction. This year’s aim is to exceed 70% participation. A in any amount has a positive impact on everyone on campus – especially our students – and has a positive influence on the grants we receive.
